The Tomatoship of New Delfos is a gargantuan, economically powerful nation, renowned for its restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 15.987 billion Delfics enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, although Social Policy and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Administration receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Delfingrad. The average income tax rate is 3.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Delfosian economy, worth a remarkable 1,998 trillion tomatoes a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Cheese Exports, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,005 tomatoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Government officials are held to the highest standard of morality, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the New Delfos Blood Tithe, the capital of New Delfos has burned to the ground and caused riots throughout the country, and the government is spending billions of taxpayer tomatoes to support the Book Publishing industry. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. New Delfos's national animal is the Big Red Tomato, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

New Delfos is ranked 329th in Taijitu and 103,660th in the world for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -3 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
